So-called heroes and patriots

What I ask is that we not be so quick to judge. Consider looking at it from the other side’s perspective for a change. Our so-called “heroes” and patriots and freedom fighters were someone else’s traitors, revolutionaries, or even terrorists. And the tactics of those trying to change the status quo have seldom been seen as noble by those trying to conserve the status quo. The “truth” isn’t always so cut and dry. Time has a way of cleansing, editing and romanticizing things.
